I didn't suggest you didn't. This is not about you, this is about NYU firing a professor because 80 GenZ students think the Orgo class is "too hard". It is also about a college in Georgia de facto cutting out more than 1/4 of GenChem curriculum to make the class easier.FFS Derec—I know how to pass and do well in organic chemistry.
Again, I did not suggest you personally did not. So why are you arguing with me about a point I did not make?Did you skip the part where I wrote I have a minor in biochemistry? I fucking did organic chemistry just fine. It wasn’t the most difficult course I’ve taken but it was probably one that I ended up disliking because of how it was taught.
I agreed with you that some professors could get better at actual teaching. That does not mean that this alone would every student would pass a hard class like Orgo or that dumbing down classes to increase grades is not happening already.There is no need to ‘dumb it down’ in order to r teach it. Profs just need to deign to do some actual teaching.
You did not even comment about colleges de facto cutting out topics like redox from GenChem because professors are not covering them in their lectures and exams. What do you think about that?
